-Simpson's, Halloween... enough said.
-Picture and sound are fine. Just like Cable.
-The price. If it cost any more I would have passed.
-The episodes they have are good ones.
-Why Tree House Episodes V, VI, VII and XII? Why not I, II, III and IV?
-Why not all of the Tree House Episodes on one, more expensive, DVD. I could not resist that!
-The Kang and Kodos "Bonus" is merely a montage of clips. No big deal.
Given these factors, it is easy to conclude that this is, indeed, a money-grab. If they released a real Tree House of Horror DVD With all the episodes, I'd jump on that like a fly on stink, at just about any price!!
Tree house of Horror V - In this annual trilogy of terror Homer attempts to kill his family in "The Shining." Homer tries to fix a toaster and winds up altering the fabric of time itself in "Time and Punishment." Principal Skinner serves students for lunch in "Nightmare Cafeteria"
Tree house of Horror VI - In this Halloween style anthology, advertising icons go berserk in "Attack of the 50 Foot eyesores". Groundskeeper Willie invades the children's dreams in "Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace". Homer enters a 3-D world of computer animation in "Homer(3)"
Tree house of Horror VII - This Simpsons showcase features a terrifying look at Bart's evil twin in "The Thing and I." Lisa creating a miniature world in "The Genesis Tub" and aliens stealing the identities of Bill Clinton and Bob Dole in "Mr Kang Goes To Washington"
Tree house of Horror XII - In "Hex & The City", a gypsy curses Homer, bringing misery to everyone he loves. In "House of Whacks" a computer (Pierce Brosnan) takes over the Simpson house and attempts to kill Homer for Marge's love. And in "Wiz Kids", Bart and Lisa are students of a school for wizards, where they foil the evil Lord Montymort
Actually, this really should be "Volume 2" of "The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror," because it offers "Treehouse of Horror" V, VI, VII and XII. Whatever the joke is here, I am clearly missing out on it. Why not V, VI, VII and VIII? For that matter why not I, II, III and IV? Is it because the first three seasons of the Simpsons are out on DVD? It is because Roman numerals confused the people making the decisions? To add insult to injury, these are bare boned discs. No commentaries, no features, no animated menus, just a some clips of Kang and Kodos (e.g., Kang on Jerry Springer). The episodes are great, but the bad faith effort here loses a star.
"Treehouse of Horror V" offers a take off on "The Shining," Homer traveling through time with the aid of a toaster in "Time and Punishment," and the school staff doing the Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett bit with the students in "Nightmare Cafeteria.Read more ›
Also...be advised that while the DVD case pictures Mr. Burns as Dracula, that episode (from Treehouse #4) IS NOT included with this disc. What's the big idea?
Picture quality is good but not great while the sound quality is very good. The bonus feature consists of Kang and Kodos clips. It's not a bad bonus feature just a bit disappointing. While this doesn't compare to having every single episode from every single season on DVD, this isn't a bad place to enjoy some really clever episodes of the series.
We start, bizarrely enough, with "Treehouse of Horror V" which parodies "The Shining". Homer goes mad and tries to kill his family because he doesn't have any TV or beer. Then "Time & Punishment" takes a classic Ray Bradbury sci-fi story about time travel and twists it inside out. "Nightmare Cafeteria" shows that Principal Skinner has new uses for his students...as lunch.
"Treehouse of Horror VI" opens with "Attack of the 50 Foot Eyesores" a loving hommage to z-movies of the 50's. "Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace" takes clever aim at the "Nightmare on Elm Street" movies with groundskeeper Willie as the Freddie Kruger of the tale. In "Homer 3" the writers cleverly take aim at "Poltergeist" and remove Homer from his two dimensional world into our own with very funny results.
With VII we get a take off on "The Other" and the whole evil twin thing. Lisa creates a world in miniature where she's God and Bart is the devil in a clever take off on a Theodore Sturgeon short story.Read more ›
